Crunchyroll has slid another Funimation series for streaming thanks to their partnership with the Romeo X Juliet show now available on the service. Giving viewers something fun to binge that’s a bit older, the series is available in its original Japanese language with English subtitles to viewers in the US and Canada as it’s an older license. The show saw a new release in Japan last year where it’s still a DVD-only property and the streaming is limited to 480p because of it.
The fully twenty-four episode series is available.
Plot concept: In the floating continent of Neo Verona, the Montague family seized control and murdered every member of the Capulet family with the exception of Capulet’s daughter, Juliet Fiammata Asto Capulet. 14 years later, Juliet and the remnants of Capulet’s retainers live hidden from the iron fist of the Montague family. Juliet has long forgotten the murder of her family or her identity, and cross dresses as Odin and the town’s hero of justice, “Red Whirlwind.” A sudden escape in her daily escapades leads her to meet Romeo Candorebanto Montague, the kind son of the tyrannical Montague. Destiny has been set as these two individuals soon to be “star-crossed lovers” are cruelly toyed with by fate in the midst of war. Loosely based on the play by William Shakespeare.
